Crime Control and Prevention District
The City of Fort Worth utilizes the Crime Control and Prevention District (CCPD), a voter-approved half-cent sales tax, to fund crime prevention tools and programs. In response to Fort Worth having historically-high crime rates throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, residents of Fort Worth voted to establish the CCPD, and the District has been continued by voters in 2000, 2005, 2009, and 2014 for subsequent five-year periods. The purpose of CCPD is to enhance FWPD’s ability to create and maintain a safe environment through efficient, quality service, and strong community partnerships. The CCPD is overseen by a nine-member board of directors that establishes the annual budget, manages expenditures, and evaluates all programs funded by the district. The revenue from the half-cent sales tax funds 40 programs and critical resources to effectively combat and prevent crime in Fort Worth. The total CCPD budget in FY2019 was $82,893,917. The following numbers are for fiscal year 2019, which means the data is from October 2018 through September 2019.
